Cool summer nights don't have to mean the end of a great outdoor get-together — all you need is this Chimney Box to keep the party going well into the night. Made from heavy gauge hot rolled American steel and weathered to a gorgeous patina, this chimney box has a functional design that throws heat forward, while pushing smoke upward. A handle designed to remain cool around the rear and wheels at the base allow you to reorient its position even while its burning. And, thanks to its beautiful design, the chimney box looks great in almost any setting, whether it's next to your hot tub, on your patio, or at the edge of a dock.
Most of the time you think of beekeepers as living out on large farms, tending to their hives with crazy hazmat-style suits on. With the Philips Urban Beehive, you can become your own beekeeper — with the bees living inside your own house. This stylish concept consists of two parts: an entry passage and flower pot that sits outdoors, and a glass shell inside. The tinted glass shell filters light to let through the orange wavelength the bees use for sight, and holds an array of honeycomb frames inside. When it's time to harvest some honey, just pull on the smoke actuator chain and grab some out while the bees are happily sedated.
Sprinkler systems are great when you live in a hot and/or dry climate where your lawn doesn't get much in the way of rain — but most systems still run even if you do get the occasional shower. The Skydrop Sprinkler Controller won't. Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi connection, it syncs up with a cloud service and adjusts its watering schedule based on current local weather conditions. As you might imagine, it also makes it possible to manage your system from your phone, tablet, or laptop, keeping you informed while saving you money and conserving water.
